Pastor Troy is widely known for his heart to reach lost and hurting people and for boldly following an innovative vision to touch lives on an unprecedented scale. In January, 2002, Pastor Troy and Julie moved to Roswell to accept the position as Senior Pastor at Church on the Move. The need to heal divisions within the city became immediately evident, and the ministries he created have been aimed at reaching people across vast economic and social backgrounds. Pastor Troy believes that hope is the greatest gift we can offer our world, and he works tirelessly to establish God’s hope in the hearts of families throughout Roswell and beyond. His special emphasis on children and youth resulted in the explosive growth of Church on the Move to over 2,000 people a week. Pastor Troy’s vision includes many outreach programs, providing the community with family events where the Good News of Jesus Christ can be heard.
Julie is originally from Oklahoma, where her mother courageously raised her and her four sisters in a Christ-centered home after the death of her father. Julie has had the opportunity to speak to thousands of women in several different venues. Julie is currently leading the Women of Worth ministry and has been the leader and key speaker at their conference for the past two years. The grace with which Julie speaks comes from a deep indwelling of Jesus in her life. Her incredible ability to touch the hearts of women from all walks of life is the result of a long marriage and caring for her children.
